It's cherry ("sakura") blossom time! Actually, since it's been so "warm" this winter, the sakura bloomed early, and they're almost past their prime here in Isahaya, but I'm sure the "hanami" (cherry blossom viewing parties) will be just starting in the rest of Japan. Since I'm so used to seeing trees that stay the same year round in South Florida, it's been quite lovely to see the changing of seasons and foliage here. The flowers are like little surprise presents that pop open when I ride by!
